Contacts, Groups and Companies are easy enough... but Notes, Histories and Activities have fields that are usually to large for Excel.

For different options to import and export to ACT!, have a look at:

Why would you want it in Excel?

You do realise that Excel has limits in it's field size and number that ACT! doesn't? It's unlikely to fully read the Notes/History because of this

with office 2007, the row should be enough for what we have.  Can itExport do Excel?  thanks

It's the field size that's the big problem.

itExport saves in CSV, which can then be opened in Excel.... if the Notes/history fields aren't to large

Usually best to have them where the database is ... less network traffic
